Seagull King
Michael Griffith
Thursday 26 July, 6pm-7pm. Free entry. Gasworks Theatre Foyer.

Unable to financially support himself, Wallace Wood an old actor who never cracked the big time, is residing in a nursing home. The world thinks he has Alzheimer’s but Wallace is only acting; superbly. To date it is the best performance of his life. Trouble is, amongst the soggy party pie dinners and incontinence pads Shakespeare has found him. Can Wallace find the courage to leave the sanctuary of this chicken coup and through Lear become the greatest of the dreamers . . . The Seagull King?
